Sport and Technology

Technology has become increasingly important to sport over the past few years, with nearly every professional sport having at least some form of interaction with IT. Indeed, many teams and associations are turning to the field of analytics to gain an edge over their competitors.

Even the Luddites in many sporting organisations are being converted after seeing the benefits of video and ball tracking technology in enforcing the laws of their game.

And, given the high profile of these events, it’s no surprise that tech firms are desperate to sponsor them. Euro 2016 and Rio 2016 will be no exception.

So see if your knowledge of sport matches up your proficiency in technology.
